Jet Aerobatics – Is dedicated to the operation, preservation and display of ex-military fast jet aircraft.
On 1st April this year the Royal Air Force reaches their 100th Anniversary!
Here at Jet Aerobatic we hope to have an extremely busy season helping with the celebrations.
We are also pleased to announce that the CAA have now withdrawn the non-aerobatic restrictions for straight winged jet aircraft which was imposed following the tragic Shoreham air crash. Unfortunately the restriction still applies to swept wing aircraft such as the Hunter, Gnat, Mig 15 &17 types.
For 2018 Jet Aerobatics will primarily offer a single ship display with the option for a pairs display. However this will depend on crew and aircraft availability.
Initially we aim to provide a flowing and visually satisfying display with a view to gradually working towards reinstating our proven highly dynamic and exciting aerobatic display which has thrilled the British public for many years.
In the meantime our display pilot/s will provide some rather graceful flying which offers the chance for people to see and photograph this amazing little aeroplane and at the same time will show the slow handling characteristics of this immaculate Mk5 (XW324).
We’re often told by the photographers amongst you that the slower, less dynamic displays are preferred by the photographers as it allows for some rather nice shots during the elegant top side passes, formation manoeuvres and opposition passes.
As a foot note, although the aerobatic restrictions have now been lifted we will still have to abide by any restrictions imposed by a venue and/or operate within an organisers’ display approval. Our displays can however be adapted to suit all venues.
Our pilots are led and supervised by the current RAF fast jet instructor and standardisation pilot, Squadron Leader Dan Arlett, who shares training and crew responsibilities with our chief pilot Chelvin Hibbert RAF Ret’d.
Dan combines 4,000 hours on fast jets with display experience on the RAF Tornado F3 and a variety of ex-military jets. This offers display organisers an assurance of the very best in safety and crowd pleasing displays. For the 2018 season our chief Pilot Chelvin Hibbert will be the primary display pilot and will work closely with the immensely experienced BAe test pilot John Hurrell.
